70
Nose
Intensely junipery.
Palate
Sweet, junipery, salty. Stony. Ironstone.
Finish
Juniper. Mint.
Comment
For its age, not at all woody, but lacking in roundness. The flavours seem to be coming apart.

Jim Murray

75
Nose
The peat plays a surprisingly minor role with the acacia-honey and malt starring. Oak wins.
Palate
Some deep oak sweetens out to welcome the malt and when peat arrives it takes a firm hold.
Finish
Medium length with lots of chocolate among the peat. Quite bitter on the finish.
Comment
A noble, attractive if rather tired version of one of the first ever makes of the new-style Caol Ila after it's rebuilding in 1974.
